Libba Bray and her rocking 2010 Printz Awards speech

Sunday, July 11, 2010

I have had, as I mentioned yesterday, the gift of time.  I've been watching and listening to other authors in part of that time, and yesterday I sat and listened to this utterly remarkable talk by Libba Bray on the occasion of her Printz Award win (for Going Bovine).  I had met her, but only briefly, at ALA, and been utterly charmed.  But one must listen to this entire talk to get a full sense of who Libba Bray is—gracious and wickedly funny, spontaneous and utterly prepared, entirely human and extra-stellar, a writer and a performer. 

This is speaking at its best and joy at its utmost.

Thanks for sharing it -- it sounds wonderful, so I'll definitely have to go check it out.

I really enjoy her books, too. Going Bovine is wild, crazy, hilarious, and thought-provoking.
